, 2003, the united states was pushing very hard to get iran referred to the u.s. security council for not being forthcoming. remember that there was the war in iraq. there was a strong push on the part of the europeans, especially britain, germany, and france not to go to the security council because they saw iran going the way of iraq. going to the security council would be a mandate for war. countries like france had been at odds with the united states over iraq and did not want to be at odds with the u.s. over iran, but wanted to stop the united states from doing what it did to iraq. we had a dramatic event where the foreign ministers of germany, in october, 2003, struck an agreement where iran would embark on uranium enrichment. it is the ultimate in dual use technology. it had the united states stepping back and britain, germany, and france became known as the eu3. in november of 2004, iran went along with this saying they would also be a part of uranium enrichment. but he doesn't buy, eu3 was submitting a proposal to iran promising help for its program. this is where you get

in egypt, say is turkey the model, i say there is no good model. even the united states of america is not a model if you are serious about freedom, dignity and also the power of the state. because i'm ready to talk about -- i will come to that point about separating, you know, the state from religion. but if you separate or distinguish the state from religion, tell me what you put instead of religion. because what we are facing in the west now -- and we all know this as citizens -- i live in europe, you live in the united states of america, and we all know that the problem that we have with our democracies now is not the dramatic decision of religions, but some magic decisions of transnational corporation and economic power that are deciding without us being able to think anything. and we call it democracy, we're still today dealing with powers that are beyond the democratic procedures. the banks, transnational corporations. and we are facing with people who are deciding. for example, in greece, in spain, in italy we have technocrats who are coming to solve the problem. we never el
be about a year and that the united states and israel and the world community would know if and when iran makes that turn. another thing they agree on, it can't be just a policy of containing iran, allowing them to go nuclear, but keeping them contained much like the old cold war as the west did with the soviet union. but prime minister netanyahu wants a more forthright stance publicly from the united states in terms of that red line. setting forth, delineating a clear deadline, clear red line of how far iran can or cannot go in developing those nuclear weapons. here's a little bit more of what he told david gregory. >> is israel closer to taking action into its own hands? >> we always reserve the right to act. but i think that if we are able to coordinate together a common position, we increase the chances that neither one of us will have to act. >> he wants more coordination with the united states in taking a stronger stand against iran. meanwhile ambassador rice says iran is growing more isolated under the policies that are now in place absent any military action. >> iran is more isola
people especially in the united states are saying no, thest a matter of free expression. the president of one of those groups was on cnn this morning. >> the only kind of hate speech that is illegal in the united states is when it incites imminent lawlessness and i think google is correct that the video in question did not meet that standard. >> google, which owns youtube, constantly having to make subjective decisions about what videos are okay. >> interesting. but this ist over because the white house has been asked to weigh in on this as well. >> the extent was asking youtube to take another look at it and then they said no, we're not going to do it. what you do have all the time, this is what's so fascinating about the way technology is changing the world. there are so many difficult decisions youtube has to face. for example, they say they don't all allow gory vooid, violent video, then you get these videos out of syria that show gore and violence. what we found is a youtube official who gave a talk a few years ago who said there's something they take a look at. to see whether a v
. this is spread throughout the united states from places like los angeles to providence, rhode island. it's a culture of corruption it seems that even the executive leadership, they knew about this sh didn't report it and kept the people on the boy scouts from tell the parents about it. >> so, that's revealed in the documentation? how was that discovered or alleged that officials knew about it then failed to report it? >> some of these documents the "l.a. times" got their hands on, we asked the boy scouts of america how they got them. they didn't want to talk about that. these are people blacklisted from volunteering with the boy scouts and in the correspondence back and forth between the leadership and people that were allegedly abusing these children, it showed they knew about these cases, covered them up and went so far as to hide the cases from the parents and law enforcement. they didn't report these cases. 80% were not reported to law enforcement. >> so, a cover up also leads one to think that potentially, those who are accused of participating in this kind of behavior, they have al
place where anyone would find any, you know, sort of satire or comedy. here in the united states, of course, we know that there are no -- there is nothing sacred. you know well, make fun of all religions and all people and things like that, and so i think, you know, there is a little bit of confliction, and i also think, randi, they might be confusing us with the european union because in many european countries there are laws which criminalize speech. for example, holocaust denial. maybe people think that, you know, there's a double standard in place here where muslim and muslims can be attacked with impunity, but other minority groups are protected. of course, there's a fwraet deal of ignorance there. >> just briefly, what do you say though those that say that muslim is not peaceful, but, many of the, violent in nature and mohammed is a warrior prophet. christian broadcaster pat robertson had this to say, for example. he said muslim is not a religion, but a violent political system. >> well, you know, pat robertson has also gone on record saying he wouldn't allow american hindu
